PREFACE. 


AT  a  meeting  of  the  Council  of  the  Massachusetts 
Historical  Society,  May  10,  1883,  "Mr.  Deane  and  Mr. 
Adams  were  appointed  a  Committee  to  cause  to  be  pre- 
pared a  Consolidated  Index  of  the  twenty  volumes  of  the 
Proceedings." 

The  Committee  accepted  the  appointment,  and  placed  in 
the  charge  of  Mr.  Charles  A.  Cutter,  the  Librarian  of  the 
Boston  Athenaeum, — who  is  regarded  as  an  expert  in  cata- 
loguing and  indexing,  and  who  had  already  performed  a 
similar  service  for  the  Society,  —  the  making  of  the  new 
index.  His  engagements,  however,  obliged  him  to  intrust 
the  principal  part  of  the  work  to  Mrs.  Alice  C.  Beckwith, 
of  Cambridge,  an  accomplished  laborer  in  this  field,  re- 
serving for  himself  only  a  general  oversight. 

The  intention  was  to  consolidate  the  indexes  of  the 
twenty  volumes  into  one  index.  But  an  examination 
showed — what  had  been  already  apparent  to  many  — 
that  the  indexes  of  the  earlier  volumes  were  defective  ; 
so  it  was  decided  to  make  new  indexes  to  five  volumes, 
beginning  with  Vol.  III.  In  the  progress  of  the  work  it 
was  found  that  some  of  the  later  volumes  were  not  wholly 
free  from  errors  and  omissions,  and  these  also  required 
revision;  and  the  additional  labor  has  not  been  small. 
The  Committee  have  not  been  inattentive  to  the  progress 
of  the  work,  and  have  rendered  what  service  they  could. 


iv  PEEFACE. 

They  desire  to  bear  testimony  to  the  faithful  and  intelli- 
gent labors  of  Mrs.  Beckwith,  who  has  been  unremitting 
in  her  work,  which,  however,  was  suspended  several 
months  by  her  severe  illness.  The  index  has  been  about 
two  years  in  preparation,  and  more  than  one  year  in  the 
press.  It  has  cost  more  time  and  more  money  than  was 
expected.  Now  that  the  work  is  finished  we  cannot  but 
believe  that  the  labor  faithfully  bestowed  upon  it  has 
produced  what  will  prove  to  be  a  correct  and  useful 
index. 

The  printing  of  the  Society's  Proceedings  was  not 
commenced  until  a  comparatively  late  period  of  its  his- 
tory. The  first  volume  printed  was  issued  in  1859,  under 
a  vote  of  the  Society,  in  April  of  the  preceding  year,  au- 
thorizing the  Standing  Committee  "  to  publish  such  a 
selection  from  the  recent  proceedings  of  the  Society  as 
they  deemed  to  be  of  general  interest."  The  Chairman 
and  Secretary  were  appointed  a  committee  to  carry  this 
vote  into  effect.  They  began  with  the  Annual  Meeting 
of  1855,  and  concluded  with  the  proceedings  of  the  year 
1857-1858.  This  period  embraced  several  matters  of  spe- 
cial interest  to  the  Society,  containing  an  account  of  the 
donations  of  the  Appleton  and  the  Sears  Fund,  of  the 
Dowse  Library  and  Fund,  of  the  Belknap  collection  of 
books  and  manuscripts,  of  the  recovery  of  the  Bradford 
Manuscript,  of  the  purchase  of  the  building  'occupied  by 
the  Society,  etc. ;  and  the  meeting  with  which  it  com- 
menced was  that  at  which  the  Hon.  Robert  C.  Winthrop 
was  first  elected  President  of  the  Society. 

This  volume  was  not  numbered  Vol.  I.,  because  it  was 
hoped  that  there  would  be  prepared,  at  some  not  very 
remote  time,  a  digest  or  selection  from  the  Society's  earli- 
est records,  and  that  such  a  volume  or  volumes  when  pub- 
lished would  take  precedence  in  the  order  of  numbering ; 
so  that  the  volumes  of  Proceedings,  which  now  continued 


PREFACE. 


to  be  issued,  contained  on  their  titlepages  and  on  their 
backs  simply  the  years  embraced  by  their  contents.  Four- 
teen volumes  were  thus  issued  down  to  and  including  the 
calendar  year  1878.  The  next  volume  in  the  chrono- 
logical series,  beginning  with  January,  1879,  was  called 
Vol.  XVII.  on  the  titlepage  and  on  the  back,  because  in 
the  mean  time  two  volumes  of  the  early  Proceedings  had 
been  prepared  and  published,  and  they  became  Volumes 
I.  and  II.  in  the  series,  and  the  unnumbered  volumes  were 
counted  in  regular  order  as  following  these.  Any  reprints 
that  may  hereafter  be  made  of  these  volumes  will  doubtless 
conform  to  this  numbering. 

Volumes  I.  and  II.  and  Volumes  XI.  to  XX.  are  stereo- 
typed. Following  is  a  list  of  the  twenty  volumes  of  Pro- 
ceedings here  indexed,  with  the  date  of  their  publication 
and  the  names  of  the  members  composing  the  Committees 
of  Publication.  The  Recording  Secretary  is  ex  officio  Chair- 
man of  the  Committee  for  publishing  the  Proceedings.
